Judged “naughty or nice” determines if you are allowed on planes or trains in China – the “Big Comrade” is watching

The Communist Party is watching – and punishing – many citizens of China today, and in 18 months everyone will be judged by their Social Credit – a number earned by absolute obedience to government rules, always behaving nicely, and paying your bills promptly. During the experimental period since 2015, those with low scores had their travel restricted: Global Times reports that as of May this year, the government hadĀ blocked […]

Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge costs $2.3 billion a mile; Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge price – $588 million!

Once called the Tappan Zee Bridge, the three-mile Mario Cuomo span over the Hudson River took 15 years of planning and construction, cost $7 billion with finance charges and interest, but lacks one essential element – public transit buses running at high speed. Meanwhile, in the land of poppies and pandas, the world’s longest connector, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, opened November 6. Public transitĀ  buses began cutting commuter time from […]

California grasps at straws over the plastic island in ocean, but the global causes are hidden from naive Americans

It will be a crime to provide plastic straws in California’s mom and pop restaurants (not fast food chains), unless requested, if Gov. J. Brown signs bill A.B. (1884) into law. We are told this will save the planet from America’s profligate destruction of the environment. It might even help diminish that waste-plastic, small continent floating in the Pacific between Hawaii and California, now measuring about three times the size […]

China steals 614 gigabytes of data from Navy contractor, while we probe Russian “collusion”

Just read another article about Russian collusion, this one on Monday in Vox about why there might, possibly, circumstantially be something dangerous or suspicious in past contacts between the Donald Trump Presidential campaign or its members or associates and anyone who ever knew or worked for Vladimir Putin. It’s tiring to read the same old litany about why Trump beat Hillary Clinton, and you might conclude “what difference, at this […]

We use medicines made in China, marketed in U.S. If you import same drugs: $100k fine + year in jail!

A popular blood thinner now costs U.S. Medicare patients and insurers more than $5,000 a year. This drug, which has amassed sales of more than $10 billion, uses Rivaroxaban as the main ingredient – a compound available from 26 manufacturers in China. When you check prices for Rivaroxaban for sale in the U.S., the cost of a 10, 15 or 20 mg tablet is virtually identical, so the product quantity […]

How does a 100% tariff only increase the real price of a pair of prescription $600 eyeglass by only $15?

What does President Donald Trump’s tariffs on $50 billion worth of imports from China actually mean, and how will this affect you? The ministers of mainstream media have received their talking points from the same lobbyists who control Congress, and they are using scare tactics on the public. “A 25% tariff on a product will raise the cost of needed goods by a third, hurting the American consumer,” one son […]

CNN, Paul Ryan, Cato, NY Times, Paul Krugman, Heritage – one establishment voice against tariffs

Rich or poor, religious or not, every leader of every Southern state in 1860 opposed tariffs and embraced slavery. In the North, where there was no slavery, everyone favored tariffs to protect both American industry and wage earners from unfair foreign competition. Today, Paul Ryan, Cato Institute or Heritage Foundation invariably promote cutting Social Security, Medicare, Minimum Wage, in fact they despise anything that helps the middle class. On the […]
